Executive Committee for Children’s Summit Established

Date Posted: 2000-01-22

During the afternoon of Wednesday, January 12th, Naha City’s Prefectural Martial Art Arena hosted a ceremony establishing an executive committee for the upcoming Children’s Summit.

The Okinawa Prefecture People’s Summit Promotion Council and the Prefectural Parks and Sports Promotion Association will sponsor the Children’s Summit to be held on May 4th and 5th. The event will be organized with the aim of giving an opportunity to the children of Okinawa to learn more about the G8 Summit participant nations. They will learn the countries’ typical features such as culture, performing arts, and other basic information that would help in furthering intercultural understanding.

The events concerning this Children’s Summit will be held at the Prefectural Comprehensive Athletic Park in Awase, Okinawa City and the Prefectural Education Center. Traditional Ryukyu Dance performances, a live performance of Diamantes and other ethnic performance arts of Group of Eight nations will be on the mini-Summit program. Other than these events, a tug-of-war tournament pitting foreign students against local Okinawans, and a soft tennis tournament, will also be held during the Children’s Summit period.
